New York, May 1st 1863

Rev. Alonzo Quint
2d Mass Vols.

Dear Sir
I write at the request of Mrs Sarah Poer whose son, John J. Clooney is a member of Co C in your Reg.

Mrs Poer says she has written on the subject of getting her Son’s pay and as she has heard that the Reg. is paid off. She is extremely anxious about it. Her present Husband refuses to support her own children and she has to rely upon her son, now with you, for their support. If you will write to me at this office I will forward it to her.

Very Respectfully
Frank E. Howe
per L. I. Howe
